STUDIO RENTAL SPACE
Are you looking for studio rental space?
Are you are a Woodlands Art League member?
If you are a Woodlands Art League member and are looking for studio rental space, three spaces are available in our building at discounted rates. There are 2 small studios at the front of our building and one larger one - see drawing below.
Studio 1B and 1C are shared spaces in the room where A.J. (Space 1A) has her studio, and measures 6' x 8'. The standard rate is $350/month, but WAL members can rent it for $300/month. This includes all utilities, wi-fi. and building access 24/7.
Studio 2 is similar in size to the space that Tom La Rock has his studio in and measures 24" x 12'. The standard rate is $900/month, but WAL members can rent it for $800/month. This includes wi-fi. and building access 24/7. You pay your share of the building's electricity (about 1/9 of the bill). This studio has built-in shelves and is completely private. It would be a great space to share with another artist. Deposit is one month's rent, and the lease term is month-to-month.
If you would like to see either of these spaces, please call Vic at 281-772-1920
What's a Paint Out?
Artists meet in a shared location to paint and draw together. It can be outside, "en plein aire," or inside at an interesting location. Share your talents, learn from others, and enjoy the company!

How to get to the New WAL Facility at 701 Sawdust Rd!
If you are looking at Hobby Lobby, look to the right to see a strip center across the way. Look to the left of that and see a blue and silver building. Then look further to the left and see a silver two-story building. WAL is in that silver building, and our entrance is on the right side of the building. We are open for classes, workshops, and other events.
How to Help WAL With (Almost) No Effort
Did you know that many retailers offer programs that will donate portions of your purchase to non-profit organizations like WAL? Amazon Smile, for example, is one such program. If you're going to order something, please consider making the Woodlands Art League your charity of choice. Ask your retailer if they have such a program and how you can sign up to support the Woodlands Art League.
Art washes away from the soul
the dust of everyday life.
The Monday Morning Portrait Group
meets every week starting at 9:30 AM at the WAL Studio. Our artists enjoy a three hour session with a live model in a long pose. You are welcome to bring whatever medium you prefer in the unstructured atmosphere of creating on your own. Interact with the other artists, sharing experiences, techniques, and friendship.
Although the group is free for WAL Members, a small fee will be collected at the time of the session to pay our model.
And if you'd ever thought about modeling, we would love to have you sit for us! Just let us know and we can put you on our calendar!
Woodlands Area Art Trading Cards Group
Create, Trade, and Collect!
We want to let you know that ATC has
Art Trading Cards are tiny gems - 2-1/2" X3-1/2" - that you make and trade with others. Any medium can be used, paints, collage, fabrics and more as long as they can fit into a standard trading card pocket. Create some to trade on the spot, or bring some with you in any state of completion.
As we are a small group, each person creates 2 cards for each member per month. We mail them out to each other at the beginning of the month. Everyone has the option of doing what they want, but we often agree on a topic for at least one of the cards.
What you do is up to you! Creativity is worth sharing and this is a perfect way to not only share your art, but get others' art in return. What a fun way to introduce yourself to new artist-friends!
This group is sponsored for the community by the Woodlands Art League. There is no charge and membership is not required. Adults and older teens with parent are welcome. Bring a friend or two!

Teri Valentine, at firstname.lastname@example.org
